Hyderabad Urban Labs Project: December 2013
This project is a unique voluntary citizen mapping initiative in Hyderabad, taken up by Hyderabad Urban Lab (HUL), in which a team from EWB-MJCET chapter participated for a period of 1 week in November-December 2013. It is a multi disciplinary research programme supported by the Right to the City Foundation.
EWB- MJCET student chapter sourced bus route information and geocoded the bus stop locations in selected Greater Hyderabad Metropolitan Areas using QGIS software.
The data gathered by us filled a crucial gap in the databases. This data is expected to lay the foundation for a much better understanding of transit problems in Hyderabad.

Govt. Schools Survey Project: 5th February - 15th February 2014
Under the inspiration and guidance imparted by Dr. Ashok Agarwal Sir, EWB MJCET launched an initiative to study the conditions in poor Govt. Schools in Hyderabad with a view to improving the condition of some of these schools. There are many government schools that lack the most basic requirements. EWB- MJCET has taken up this task as a challenge. Though it is cumbersome, we were successful in creating a database of eight such schools by travelling round the city and examining these schools with the help of media. The photos below were taken at Govt Girls High School, Amberpet.
The schools which are most in need will be short listed and will be developed in the next phases.
Kasturba Memorial Trust Project: (March-August 2014)
Kasturba National Memorial Trust provides a shelter for neglected and underprivileged women. Conditions at the shelter are very poor, lacking basic amenities. EWB MJCET Chapter participated in a project, based on a generous grant of $120,000 or Rs. 68 lakhs from Pratt and Whitney Aerospace, USA, BELCAN, MTC, UTC, Cyient and their allied companies, to construct a two storey building, equipped with E-Learning Centre, Play ground, Bunker Beds, Water Harvesting System, Solar Water heater.
